ball fouls, you're shooting like nowitzki is on these rebounding fouls and they're going back to mario chalmers. >> mike: all the practice that he does at the free-throw line, day after day, year after year, comes to fruition here. nowitzki, such a spectacular free throw shooter. one of the best ever. two clutch ones there. a 17-4 run. nowitzki doing it again here in the fourth quarter. james out to chalmers. shot clock at five. bosh. nowitzki on him. couple of fakes. and whacked from behind, stevenson went for the block and fouled him. >> mark: and he recognized that's a bad play by him. not a smart foul. force chris bosh to make this shot.
outstanding defense. live with the contest. stevenson well aware. this is not a smart play. certainly a foul. the crowd doesn't like it, but he climbed the back of chris bosh and bosh going to the line for two. >> jeff: how does the crowd not like that call? >> mike: meanwhile, bosh. that free throw, the first miami point in 5:30. zone defense, again, another adjustment from rick carlisle. he's made some great ones here in game four. >> mark: i expect the dallas mavericks on the other end to go to that screen and roll with terry handling the basketball. >> mike: bosh, two clutch free throws there. he did it in the chicago series. two-point game. 1:45 remaining. kidd holding. chalmers trying to knock it away.

fourth, making another superb comeback. but can they finish it off? can they close it out and even the series? gets it to go. these fans are rocking here at the american airlines center. >> mark: d-wade getting behind the line of defense. opportunity to knock down another free throw to tie this ball game. and rick carlisle says he wants a time-out. in and out! no wit sk nowitzki, the rebound. and carlisle gets his time-out, with 29.3 remaining. miami does not have to foul. dallas by one. mavericks ball when we come back. ♪ ♪ ♪

making tires for all-star handling inspires what they roll into yours. 29.3 seconds remaining. fourth quarter, game four of the nba finals. game three was not decided until the final shot taken. same scenario for game two. perhaps a third straight game. and right now, dirk nowitzki and the mavericks, hanging onto that one-point lead. >> jeff: i'm going to say this. this inbound pass with wade, james and chalmers -- you cannot take for granted and let them shoot the passing lane for the steal. >> mike: dallas still has a time-out remaining. miami with two time-outs. neither team a foul to give. terry, chandler, stevenson, kidd and knnowitzki. >> mark: if i'm dallas, i'm getting the ball in the hands of dirk. allow the clock to dwindle down. don't put too much time on this clock and give the heat a chance to come back. >> mike: here it is in the hands
of nowitzki. >> jeff: he has to be patient. >> mike: haslem right up on him. drives underneath. he puts it in! nowitzki makes it a three-point game. time-out, miami. >> jeff: sometimes even when you're wrong, you're right. >> mike: a strong move to the basket for nowitzki. >> jeff: he drives it right. that's where they want him to be. wade almost gets there. but that's a great move by nowitzki. a great finish. but too much time left on the clock for miami.
>> mike: to nowitzki. puts up the three -- puts it in! dallas goes up by three! chalmers knocks down the three. and ties the game. nowitzki. drives, underneath lefty layup, banks it in. dallas has tied the finals. bosh, the open jumper. puts it in. nowitzki spins. head fake, falling away. shot won't go. and miami holds on and takes game three. and this play from dirk nowitzki with dallas clinging to the lead. drives and gets it off the glass. nowitzki, ten points in the fourth quarter. a 19-7 run by the mavericks. and 14.4 seconds remaining.
miller in with james, wade, chalmers back in and bosh. to the mavericks foul and not give up the three-point attempt? >> jeff: no, there's too much time right now to do that. but as miami's downsized, they have so many three-point shooters. they can't also forget about chris bosh. he's got the ability to step out and make the three. >> mark: and to me, i would foul. i make it a free throw shooting contest. >> mike: good ball denial. kidd on wade. chandler gets up on him. wade on the drive. attacks the goal and throws it down. nine seconds remaining. and rick carlisle will call his final time-out. be able to advance the ball, but they are out of time-outs. >> mike: smart play by the heat. plenty of time, so, you get the sure deuce and now you try to foul to try to come up with a steal first. >> jeff: well, that's the thing, right? you have to try to get the steal.
>> mark: good job by wade. you don't want to end the game by taking a three-point over tyson chandler. plenty of time. put your head down, make a play and now, quick time-out, you're able to try to come up with a steal. foul immediately and then another another opportunity for the last possession. >> jeff: inbounding the ball without time-outs is very difficult. >> mike: lot of pressure. no question. and against such a good athletic team, they are excellent at ball denial. >> jeff: officials allow for a lot more contact late. now, stojakovic is coming in. >> mike: stojakovic enters the game. he has not played yet. obviously he's a very good free throw shooter but he's cold. hasn't even had a sweat. >> mark: he still should be in the game. and the best guy possible to take the ball out of bounds, jason kidd. >> jeff: now they're bringing people in the back court. three defenders against two
offensive players. this is a hard completion right here. >> mark: i like the idea of double-teaming dirk nowitzki. >> mike: terry comes to the ball. goes in the back court. terry running away from james and he fouls him with 6.7 remaining. good hustle play from terry. he's allowed to go in the back court on that. and now he'll goat to the free-throw line. terry, an excellent free throw shooter. 2 for 4 tonight. >> jeff: and jason kidd just looked at mark jackson, breathing a sigh of relief on that inbounds pass, because if terry would have caught that ball where it was thrown, his momentum would have brought him into the back court for a back court violation. he let the ball bounce and didn't catch it. >> mike: 82% career free throw shooter. clutch, right there. two-point game. this would make it a three-point game.
miami still has a time-out left. jason terry, two clutch free throws. and dallas with a three-point lead with 6.7 remaining. miami will now be able to advance the ball in the front court. all right, jeff, now 6.7. jeff, mark, do you foul, not let them get a three-point attempt? >> mark: there's no question i'm fouling. too many things have to go right if i foul for me to lose. >> jeff: i agree with you, if the catch is with their back to the basket. but there's so many good players now who, as they see you fouling, if you're faced up to the basket, get into that shooting motion. this is what you go over in special situations from day one of training camp for just these moments. and these are not as easy a decision as people think. because there's so many variables that go into it. where are you catching, how you catch it?
>> mike: third straight game in these finals going down to the final shot, the final buzzer. mike miller will inbound. >> jeff: and mike, if they score on a -- they have to take a two, dallas has got to realize, they have to get the ball out of bounds and inbounds successfully. >> mike: both teams out of time-outs. chandler, the seven footer, gifts up on miller on the inbounds pass. >> mike: to me, i wouldn't even be playing inside the three-point line. stretch your defense. allow them to have anything easy. no time-outs. >> mike: miller looking. finds wade. wade lost the ball. throws in the back court. gets it to miller. miller puts it up -- air ball! and that's it! the mavericks have even the series! what a game and what a series.
another incredible comeback by the dallas mavericks in these 2011 playoffs. and the nba finals deadlocked at two games apiece. >> mark: last possession designed pretty much for lebron in the corner and wade coming off the screen. couldn't catch the basketball. does a great job of saving it back to mike miller. mike miller gets a heave at the buzzer, shoots an air ball. >> mike: tyson chandler, part of the great dallas defense in the fourth quarter. he's with doris burke. >> doris: tyson, how difficult was this game for dirk nowitzki to play through? >> man, it was tough. he was battling 100-something fever right now. the thedoctors couldn't keep it under control. the effort he gave tonight was
unbelievable. >> doris: you guys had to support him. what was the mind set of you and jason terry and everybody in support of dirk tonight? >> we all seen him go through walk-through and he was barely able to talk. every time he tried to speak, he was coughing. we knew we really had to step up and get it for him tonight. >> doris: you guys talked about avoiding the double-digit deficits. how were you able to avoid those big runs? >> we just play with haerpt aea passion. you have to go all out to win. >> doris: congratulations, tyson. mike? >> mike: all right, doris. tyson chandler, terrific defensive performance. it is a different dallas mavericks team than we've seen in recent years. so gritty, to tough. and never give up. another comeback adding to what they've done already. and dirk nowitzki, 10 of his 21 in the final period. he's the winner of tonight's finals player of the game vote, presented by t-mobile. be sure to tune into game five
